We stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn for three nights in October and would thoroughly recommend the hotel. Our arrival was late at night after a long flight and a long queue at immigration, but we were made to feel welcome straightaway.
Our room was the Sunset Room, beautifully decorated in a Victorian style with light furniture, a very comfortable bed covered in cushions and all the conveniences we required. There was a bath with shower and outside, a private terrace area with swinging hammock and a table and chairs.
The continental breakfast is served downstairs in or outside (we sat outside on the lovely terrace) or can be delivered to your room at no cost.
The hotel offers lots of great touches, freshly made cookies and chocolates in a little box with “Have a good night from the Glorietta Bay Inn” delivered each night, milk for the cookies in the hall way, fresh lemonade available anytime and wine and cheese in the early evenings.
The Glorietta as described is just across from the Coronado Del Mar Hotel and is in a perfect location for the beach and Orange Street where many restaurants are located. We ate at the Brigantine which was very good and ice-creams in the gelateria at the Del are not to be missed.
There are also two theatres on Coronado Island. We went to see Around the World in 80 days at the Lamb’s Theatre only ten minutes walk away and it was very entertaining. The Old Town Trolley tour also stops in Orange Street we took a great tour of San Diego.
All in all, we would recommend this lovely boutique hotel and hope to stay there again some day.
